I’d say we’d all agree that there’s more to the NBA regular season than opening week, Christmas Day, and Martin Luther King Jr. Day…right?
Well, the NBA wants to continue their power trip and dangle a few key dates in our faces with a small reveal. I think it’s ridiculous. Release the whole dang schedule. It’s not like someone in the office has to “get around to it!” because this is literally someone’s job that they get paid to do. In this case…maybe this person did their job and the schedule is made and set to go, but the NBA just wants to be silly.
So, even though this process is both annoying and dumb, here is some key information you may want to know for the opening of the 2018-2019 season:
The season will begin on October 16 with the Philadelphia 76ers facing the Boston Celtics (told you! I have my sources…)and the Golden State Warriors playing the Oklahoma City Thunder. For the 23nd consecutive year, TNT will cover the opening night double header. ESPN will take over on Wednesday for the Houston Rockets against the New Orleans Pelicans and the Phoenix Suns against the Dallas Mavericks.
Visit the NBA’s official website here to get the entire low-down of what was revealed.
Also, I hope none of your Martin Luther King Jr. or Christmas Day plans change because of the NBA schedule.
